Description

Are you a combination of actor, director, producer, designer, or anything else? Congratulations, you're a multi-hyphenate! A multi-hyphenate is an artist who has multiple proficiencies that cross pollinate to help flourish professional capabilities. Dear Multi-hyphenate explores the full potential of artists in show business who have taken the paths less traveled. Are you unsure how to stay creative and garner income during the pandemic? Are you sitting on a project and you have no idea how to get started? What if others have cornered you into thinking that you are just an actor, or just a director, or just a producer? Let go of the rules and take agency of your full potential! Listen to me and my guests, the leaders of the multi-hyphenation station, as we dissect the mentality and possibilities about artistic agency.

What's it like leading a life without rules?

Kimberly also tells us what it's like to navigate having her one woman show, Fabulous Fanny Brice, throughout quarantine. Some things we address are how to sell a virtual show, how do you sell multiple aspects of yourself at once, who becomes your audience, what's the difference between multi-tasking and multi-hyphenating, and what are the factors that make up our hyphen identities. Kimberly Faye Greenberg is the first and only actress to play leading roles in two Off-Broadway musicals at the same time. In addition, Kimberly’s numerous portrayals of Fanny Brice (4 shows/2 CDs) have been critically acclaimed by the New York Times, Huffington Post, and Associated Press.

#34 - Carly Valancy: The Reach Out Party!
2881
This episode, featuring Carly Valancy, focuses on creating a condition in which something might happen. One action, one motion and bam - you're able to tell your story from your perspective. Sounds simple - and it's something that Carly, founder of The Reach Out Party, has mastered. Carly's objective is to be a full time artist, which comes with so many different meanings, perspectives, and forms. Her motive is to bring art into artless spaces and for you to recognize that you, the artist, are magicians and the power that comes with it. Listen to how - by just reaching out once a day to someone now, Carly was able to quit her survival job and become an artist who garnered income by doing just that: art.

#28 - Tia Altinay: Building A Plane As You're Flying It
2763
When is it time to explore something knew? There is no letter that falls out of the sky telling you it's time to start your next journey - but there are hints, Universal hints, and conversations that lead you in that direction.

With Broadway performance and producing credits under her belt, Tia takes the lesson from Mary Poppins that anything CAN happen if you let it.

#23 - Lori Wheat: I Wish I Had A Formula
2857
When do you know it's time to stop what you're doing and change paths? Sometimes multi-hyphenating isn't about doing everything you've always known to be true. Sometimes it's going on a journey and learning new things. Lori Wheat went on ONE audition in NYC and shifted gears. She didn't quit the industry, but she did figure out how to best tell her stories and help those around her. Though there isn't a formula for being original, Lori did one of the scariest things an artist can do: start something new and create Her Story Branding.
